He was joined by his anger translator Luther from Comedy Central's 'Key & Peele.'

President Barack Obama offered plenty of cutting jabs during his speech at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday. 

Obama was also joined by Key & Peele's Keegan-Michael Key, who played his anger translator Luther. Luther criticized politicians who don't believe in climate change, saying about California's drought: "It looks like a trailer for the new Mad Max movie up in there." Luther also compared Hillary Clinton to Khaleesi from Game of Thrones.

Here are some of Obama's more memorable remarks. 

On the end of his second term:

"I feel more loose and relaxed than ever. Those Joe Biden shoulder massages, they're like magic."

On having a "bucket list":

"Well, I have something that rhymes with 'bucket list.' Take executive action on immigration? Bucket."

On how the presidency has aged him:

"I look so old, John Boehner's already invited Netanyahu to speak at my funeral."

On health care reform:

"Today, thanks to Obamacare, you no longer have to worry about losing your benefits if you lose your job. You're welcome, Senate Democrats."

On Dick Cheney's criticism:

"Cheney said he thinks I’m the worst president of his lifetime, which is interesting because I think Dick Cheney is the worst president of my lifetime."

On Michele Bachmann:

"Just this week, Michele Bachmann actually predicted that I would bring about the biblical end of days. Now, that's a legacy. That's big. I mean, Lincoln, Washington, they didn't do that."

On Hillary Clinton's campaign:

"For many Americans, this is still a time of deep uncertainty. I have one friend, just weeks ago, she was making millions of dollars a year, and she's now living out of a van in Iowa."

On his friendship with Joe Biden:

"We've gotten so close, at some places in Indiana, they won't serve us pizza anymore."

On host Cecily Strong:

"On Saturday Night Live, Cecily impersonates CNN anchor Brooke Bolden, which is surprising because usually the only people impersonating journalists are journalists on CNN."

On the cast of Black-ish attending the event:

"I have to give ABC fair warning: Being 'black-ish' only makes you popular for so long."

On this year's chilly winter: 

"The polar vortex caused so many record lows, they renamed it MSNBC."

On Ted Cruz comparing his climate-change criticism to Galileo's discoveries:

"Galileo believed the Earth resolves around the sun. Ted Cruz believes the Earth revolves around Ted Cruz."

On Rick Santorum:

"Rick Santorum said he would not attend a wedding of gays of lesbians, to which gays and lesbians responded: That’s not going to be a problem."

On the Koch brothers' supporting a GOP candidate:

"Who will finally get that red rose? The winner gets a billion-dollar war chest. The runner-up gets to be the Bachelor on the next season of The Bachelor.

On Hillary Clinton going unrecognized at a Chipotle:

"Not to be outdone, Martin O'Malley kicked things off by going completely unrecognized at a Martin O'Malley campaign event."
